    Crossover means the draglink from the pitman to the steering arm ontop of the right side knuckle. Hi-steer is when you move the tie-rod up to the top of the knuckles using a steering arm ontop of each knuckle. Crossover steers much better and allows you to retain steering when heavily articulated. Hi-steer doesn't improve the steering, but allows the tie-rod to be moved up a bit out of harms way (rocks, etc.).
